  3. Bosi scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    A really good standard, which shows that Benromach is not just talking about distilling an old school malt, but that it succeeds.
    In my opinion, Benromach is still completely underrated.
    • Nose
      The typical light smoke of Benromach flows first into the nose. This is followed by very interesting flavors of meat, bacon, nutmeg and mashed potatoes. That's pretty old school. The nose is rounded off by a hay note.
    • Taste
      The taste is dominated by grassy notes, tea, lemon and oak. The smoke is barely noticeable.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length, with flavors of English orange marmalade and a newly lit fireplace fueled with beech wood.

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    This is premium whisky at entry level price.
    • Nose
      First a sweet sherry note, then some distinct peat smoke. They marry well together over delicate oak.

      Leather and shoe polish mix with orange zest.

      This is sophisticated and complex for a 10YO.
    • Taste
      Bold rich body. The smoke is there, but not as peaty as the nose implies. Moist tobacco and dark chocolate. Rich sherry and a pinch of nutmeg. Very well ballanced. This is yummie.
    • Finish
      Medium ++ lenght, ever so slightly drying.

      Oaky sherry with the peat note making a light return.
